100th Viking production Series 400 Twin Otter on display at EAA Airventure 2017

Viking Air Limited of Victoria, British Columbia, announced its 100th production Series 400 Twin Otter, manufacturer's serial number 944, will be on display at the 2017 EAA Airventure airshow in Oshkosh, Wisconsin from July 24 to July 30, 2017.

Equipped with Wipline 13000 amphibious floats, the 100th Viking Twin Otter will be located in float-manufacturer Wipaire Inc.'s booths #226 - #228 in the main aircraft display at the EAA Fly-In Convention Grounds.

The aircraft represents a significant milestone for the Series 400 Twin Otter production program and bears a striking patriotic Canadian livery for its role as factory demonstrator operated by Viking's sister company Pacific Sky Aviation Inc.

"2017 marks the first year Viking has participated in the EAA Airventure show, and it's only fitting that we bring our 100th production aircraft emblazoned with the Canadian maple leaf the same year we celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary," commented David Curtis, Viking President & CEO. He added, "I will personally be attending the show, and am looking forward to seeing Viking's aircraft participating in this amazing aircraft extravaganza!"

Renowned for its unique performance characteristics and ability to reliably operate in extreme environments, the first one hundred Series 400 Twin Otters produced by Viking exemplify the type's versatility, with 38% operating as regional carriers, 31% performing in military or special missions roles, 26% providing industrial support, and 5% utilized by private charter. Of the first one hundred Viking Twin Otters, 70 aircraft are configured with standard wheel gear, 18 are equipped with straight or amphibious floats, 10 are configured with Intermediate Flotation Gear (IFG), and 2 are equipped with wheel skis.

Originally launched in March 2007, the Viking Series 400 Twin Otter is now flown in 29 countries and certified by 20 different regulatory bodies worldwide.
